Uma jóia no Pico

  • 5 of 5

As casinhas da Silke e do Tobias na Prainha são uma pequena-grande maravilha! O local é mágico: a vista é ainda mais impressionante do que alguma foto pode mostrar, e só apetece passar o dia inteiro naquele terraço a ver as nuvens passar, a luz mudar, os tons de verde da ilha e de azul do mar ir variando... As casas são muito bonitas, construidas com todo o cuidado e muito bem integradas na paisagem. Os interiores são perfeitamente funcionais e confortáveis, não faltando nada quanto a equipamento. Acordar com aquela vista aos nossos pés! Incrivel previlégio. Estas casas são um exemplo a seguir nos Açores em geral. A Silke e o Tobias são excelentes anfitriões, simpáticos e acolhedores, disponíveis para todos os conselhos e sugestões e ao mesmo tempo, 'invisíveis' e perfeitamente discretos - e com tanta atenção ao detalhe, cheios de pequenas surpresas! Muito obrigado S+T, vemo-nos de novo no Pico!

Peaceful honeymoon cottage

  • 5 of 5

We spent four days on Pico while on our honeymoon, and we were so impressed with the level of service we received at Refugio do Pico. Silke and Tobias really made sure we had a special honeymoon experience. They were so friendly, left us personalized notes, and helped us with services such as renting a car and making sure we were at the airport on time when we left.

The cottage was stayed in was very new and clean, and private. The kitchen was well-equipped and we cooked some dinners during our stay. We were happy to have the use of a TV while we were there, too. The view from the window was beautiful!

One note to travellers is that the property is at the top of a very steep heel, so if you are driving a rental car, make sure you are comfortable driving up a hill using a standard transmission.

If we return to Pico, we will definitely stay at Refugio do Pico again!

Urlaub mit Sehnsuchtsfaktor

  • 5 of 5

Die Unterkunft hat unsere Erwartungen noch übertroffen. Sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, alles aufeinander abgestimmt, keine überflüssigen Dinge, aber alles - wirklich alles, was man braucht. Die Erstversorgung hat ebenso überzeugt, wie das sehr sehr nette Willkommen der sehr aufmerksamen und freundlichen Gastgeber, die sich um ihre Gäste wunderbar kümmern, dennoch dezent im Hintergrund bleiben. Der fantastische Blick von der Terrasse ist selbst bei weniger gutem Wetter ein Erlebnis. Und wenn es mal etwas kühler ist, wärmt der Kaminofen, für den das Holz bereits parat liegt. Sehr empfehlenswert für alle, die Ruhe und Entspannung auf einer wunderbaren Insel suchen. Wir kommen wieder.

Einfach wundervoll!

  • 5 of 5

Machmal ist die Zeit so schnelllebig, dass man glatt vergisst, Bewertungen abzugeben. Dafür sind die Erinnerungen aus dem Juli so präsent und noch immer voller Freude, vor allem, wenn man schon für das kommende Jahr gebucht hat !!! Zu dem Quartier ist in anderen Bewertungen alles gesagt. Zum Wohlfühlen! Es fehlt an nichts. Wollte man auf Pico nicht aktiv sein, könnte man den ganzen Tag auf der Terrasse verbringen. Der fantastische Blick auf die Küste von Pico und die Nachbarinsel Sao Jorge ist zu jeder Tageszeit etwas Besonderes. Und die Beobachtung sich ständig und schnell verändernder Wolkenformationen kommt einem schöner und beruhigender vor als jeder Kinofilm. Auch die Gastfreundschaft von Silke und Tobias ist bereits hinreichend gewürdigt. Die Aufmerksamkeit und Liebenswürdigkeit der beiden hätte eigentlich 10 Sterne verdient!!

Wir haben uns in die Azoren verguckt und möchte dieses Reiseziel eigentlich niemandem weiterempfehlen.
